The first thing you notice in Dmitry Ageev‘s photographs are the eyes. They are striking, compelling, they draw the viewer in and make you wonder what they are thinking about. Even though some of the poses are similar, each set of eyes tells a different story. They are pensive, pleading, daring, questioning, frightened, loving. He captures, not just the face, but the person; whether it is a real person or a fictional character the model is playing. You can almost hear what they are thinking or what they would say if they could speak. Each one is a character study for an untold novel just begging to be written.
